DT Deni - Animals 3

Hi guys,

Dt Deni here,

I was asked by a friend to make some cards for her Aunty and Mum. They just fit the animal theme perfectly so thought I would share them here also. Oh - and I was actually writing down what I was writing while I was making which I don't do normally unless i'm specifically working on something for a Design Team.


Anyway, I used two stamp sets from My Favorite Things, I used Farm-tastic and PI Green Pastures. They worked so perfectly together.

I inked the images up using Memento Tuxedo Black, stamped them using my Misti Stamping Tool on 250GSM Mondi Color Copy.

I coloured the images using Copic Markers which will be listed below with the product list.

 I first stamped the PI Green Pastures, I then masked off the sections I was planning on stamping over using Post It Notes. I then stamped the animals (whether it be the Pig or The Chicken), I cut a mask for the animals and then stamped the fence.

I cut the scene out using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Square die on my Sizzix Big Shot.

I then stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Black cardstock using Versamark Watermark Ink (I prepped the cardstock first using a Powder Tool), I added the Ranger embossing powder in white and melted it using my heat tool.

Papers are from Kaisercraft Cock-a-Doodle-Doo, the blue cardstock is Canson. I also cut out the blue 50 using the Canson Cardstock MFT Little Numbers. I coated the numbers using Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Brush, everything was attached using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue and Scotch ATG.

DT Deni - Animals 2

Hi everyone,

DT Deni here with an animal card featuring Art Impressions Doggy Kisses set.

I also have a video to share on this card - you can see it here.

The images were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black on Misti Stamping Tool and after I decided to restart the sentiment I used a Lawn Fawn Acrylic block.

I have coloured the image using Copic Markers (listed below), I have put the card together using papers from Studio Calico Here and There collection.

This card was made for a friend of mine who had surgery recently so I'll be popping it into the mail for her today, sometimes a small gesture can make a world of difference.

Hope you guys have enjoyed all the Design Teams animal projects this month the girls have definitely put on a show for us.

DT Teresa - Animals 2

Hello Everyone!

I am back with my second "Animal" project for the month - winter is almost over - yay!!

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a side folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".

I cut four frames from My Favourite Things Blueprints 27 with a Sizzix Bigshot Machine and stacked them together, adhering with Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I then glued the stamped and die cut cats from My Favorite Things Smitten Kitten (stamped with Memento Tuxedo Ink, coloured with copic markers onto X-Press It cardstock) in place onto the front of the frame. I diecut some American Crafts glitter cardstock in a purple shade with the same frame for the squares and adhered them to the back of the images. 

I cut a piece of white cardstock and coloured the edges using a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool with Distress Oxide Ink, Seedless Preserves and adhered the frame to the centre of this piece. I then adhered a piece of white cardstock cut with the frame die into the rectangle opening.

I used the My Favorite Things You Trio to diecut 'YOU' three times from white cardstock and once from glitter cardstock, stacked the letters and adhered these in place.

I went back to the My Favorite Things Blueprints 27 and used the small fishtail banner for the sentiment from My Favorite Things Smitten Kitten. I stamped the sentiment in Distress Oxide Ink, Seedless Preserves with my MISTI  and then stamped it again with Versamark Ink on top. I heat embossed it with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder using a Wagner Heat ToolI then added the sentiment onto the card.

Once the piece was added to the card base, I added a tiny amount of Ranger Enamel Accents, Black to the eyes of the cats and Ranger Glossy Accents to their noses to complete the card.

Thankyou for following along with me today. If you cannot find the items I have used (listed below) in the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts store, be sure to drop Neha a message via email or Facebook and she will do what she can to order the product in for you.

Happy crafting and have a great day!

DT Kerry - Animals 2

Hi, Kerry here back with another "animals" themed project.... Unicorns are animals aren't they?! 😉

I still haven't had enough of the Pop-up Box die so I made another card for you today.

I tried to make the unicorn appear as though it's flying in the clouds and the rainbow floating within the fluffiness (by using pieces of acetate and vellum). The little fairy is just adorable and an extra touch of whimsy. I used my Zig Brush Markers to colour the rainbow on some Tim Holtz water colour cardstock as they have the brightest saturation out of all my water colour mediums.

To make the "wishes" script stand out a little more I popped up it up with some fun foam.  I die cut some additional clouds, added some silver embossing and a touch of Wink of Stellar and voila, done.

Happy crafting everyone!

DT Deni - Animals

Good Afternoon Everyone,

DT Deni here today sharing a card with you following on from our theme of "Animals" for the month of August.

I have used a stamp set from Stampendous House Mouse Collection called Cling Balloon Surprise.

The image has been stamped on Mondi Color Copy 250GSM with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink using Misti Stamping Tool (with rubber removed).

I must say how impressed I was with this stamp, I don't think I have ever used any of these stamps previously but the stamping of this image was absolutely spectacular..it was a crisp clean stamp and I was super impressed with the details on the first stamping in that I didn't even need to stamp it a second time.

I coloured up the image using Copic Markers. I did have a Copic Colouring and Process Video but unfortunately lost it all in the editing process, can't even tell you how upset I was :-(, after many days of computer issues I was slightly let down.

**EDIT - How lucky am I!! I found my videos and was able to save them woohoo! So at the moment I have the Copic Colouring process for you here, and the process video here.

So unfortunately this is a quick blog post with not much information as everything was thrown out after the video was made (I will make sure I start writing everything in a book from now on hahah).

Thanks For stopping by,

DT Teresa - Animals

Hello everyone!

This month we are sharing projects featuring animals on the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts blog. Many companies have brilliant creature stamps and Neha has numerous styles of animal stamps in the store, from Katzelkraft critters to Clearly Besotted beasties to Lawn Fawn fauna - you are sure to find something to suit your style!

Today I am again working with stamps from one of my favourite companies, My Favorite Things.

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a top folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".

I die cut a frame with a Sizzix Big Shot Machine from My Favorite Things Dienamics Stitched Cover-Up Companion - Vertical four times from Neenah Classic Crest 80lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock and adhered these together on top of each other using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I stamped the sentiment from the new My Favorite Things Happy Hippos on the centre of the frame with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and then adhered the frame to the card base. 

I used the same die to cut a small rectangle piece from My Favorite Things Calm & Cozy Chevron 6x6 Paper Pack to fit inside the bottom rectangle of the frame. I first adhered it to one piece of Neenah cardstock left over from the frames I cut earlier and adhered it in place to the card base. I then diecut a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Cardstock - Green Apple with Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain Borders and a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Cardstock - Seaglass with the same die. I pieced these together, adhering them to one larger rectangle piece of Neenah cardstock from the top of the frame. I then cut away the overhanging pieces of coloured cardstock with Tim Holtz Kushgrip Scissors and placed the rectangle back into the larger rectangle of the frame and ran it through the Sizzix Bigshot Machine again in order to have the stitched edge on the rectangle piece. I adhered this in place onto the card base.

I cut the sun from the Simon Says Stamp 100lb Cardstock - Sunshine with the Mama Elephant Stitched Sky die set and trimmed the rays off a little at the top and on the right using a mini guillotine, similar to the Tonic Studio guillotine. This enabled me to tuck it snugly into the corner inside the frame.

I then stamped the hippo, birds and balloons from the My Favorite Things Happy Hippos in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, using my Misti Stamping Tool onto X-Press It Blending card. I coloured these using Copic Markers and cut each image using a Brother Scan n Cut as I did not have the coordinating dies on hand. I placed these onto the card using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to add dimension.

I completed the card by adding Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins - 4mm and 6mm.

Thankyou for following along with me today. If you cannot find the items I have used (listed below) in the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts store, be sure to drop Neha a message via email or Facebook and she will do what she can to order the product in for you.

DT Deni - Monday Focus

Hi Everyone,

DT Deni here with you tonight.

Not a normal monthly DT post here. But some of you may know that I have decided to start trying to make You Tube videos of my colouring and card process. I have finally worked all this out. There is a few little hiccups along the way but I feel like I am getting better and better.
A few people have been awesome and given me feedback on things I can do to make them better. I am hoping in my latest video that I have been able to do exactly that.

My first video - the turtle is horrible! Yes I am being honest hahah. I wasn't sure how to make a you tube video.. I started out videoing in one program and then in a second, this has made my video jump around and the background music cut in and out. **EDITED this video has been removed apparently the music in the background which was part of the editing software was a breach of copyright laws**

Anyway onto the good stuff.. Video 2 is a Copic Colouring video, I have coloured up the My Favorite Things Space Explorer stamp set that I recently received in an order from Auzz Trinklets n Crafts. I'd love for you to pop by my You Tube channel and check it out.

Here is the card I created using the image from Video 1.

Once you have watched it, i'd love for you to watch video number 3 which I have just finished editing tonight. I have made a few improvements on this one - I slowed the video down a little, I added pictures of the completed project at the end, I am focusing on my nerves.. had all my supplies written down so I didnt feel on the spot too much when I was doing the voice over. I have also had my ventolin before talking and concentrated on my breathing haha. I am still struggling a little after being sick two weeks ago. I would love your honest feedback if you think there is something else I can improve on.

Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you again over the next few days as the DT Girls share their "Animal" themed projects. I will see you on Saturday with a project and hopefully another video to go with it.

DT Kerry - Animals

Hello everyone,

This weeks theme is "animals" so I thought I would make something other than a card and produce a scrapbook page.  Its been a while since my last layout and I have been wanting to scrap a page of our relatively new dog (now 2 years old) since we bought her home.

The kids absolutely love her and she brings so many laughs (and who's turn it is to feed her arguments) to our home.

I hope you find some inspiration to create a page of one of your pets (if you have one).

Thanks for looking!

 I started off by using some Strathmores Bristol Smooth cardstock and stamping the fox stamp from the Altenew Origami stamps with Versamark ink several times and embossed with the Ranger Super Fine embossing powder in white.  I then blended some Tim Holtz Oxide inks in Broken China and Cracked Pistachio colours over the page.  After splattering some water to distress the background and flicking some Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron, I was ready to start laying out my design.

I wanted to include more than one photo (so I could include both children) and felt that it was too congested with them all being visible, so I added a "flap" so you could lift it to see the other pictures.  Having the die cut leaves and flowers also made it fun by adding some more detail... almost like 2 layouts in one ;-)

Products used:

*I have listed some products above that possibly dont appear in the Auzz Trinklets Store however, if you contact Neha she may be able to order it in for you.

Happy crafting, Kerry.
